Creativity, Unleashed -- What a Workshop!

We had a fun, festive time at the Valentine Collage Workshop last Thursday at Logan Hardware on 14th Street in Washington, DC. Six attendees spent their time cutting and pasting to their hearts' content (pardon the pun). We all enjoyed the colorful, luscious papers, tapes, and ephemera, and we also loved meeting and spending time with like-minded crafters. What a beautiful evening!

It was especially great for me to see the paper combinations the crafters used. They all had different perspectives, and I enjoyed seeing the colors/textures they put together.

Gina used her prompt, a quote on paper to help guide her toward our "Heart & Soul" theme, right on her collage. So did many of the other attendees.

 Jack's lovely work. He used 3D dots to build up the height of the multiple hearts.

Kay's playful collage, full of life and laughter.

Kim, a wonderful collage artist (I love collecting her cards!), had her way with words.

And I loved how Robbie used the dancing blue fish in her work!

Kristin's beautiful card contained a surprise...


Jack made a second card, also with paper elements inside.

 Robbie's second card made use of silhouettes. Nice!
